commented on SL Letter of the Day: OKStupid
Jesus, I hate to imagine what the other messages must have been like that didn't quite warrant that response AND A LETTER TO DAN SAVAGE... Did they say "hey lady, wanna hook up?" or something really super shocking and vulgar like that?
commented on Douchebro Business Insider CTO Gets Fired for Being a Douche
Transpose that douchebro logic from misogyny to racism and I've seen tebaggin' cousins of mine say almost exactly the same thing on FB.
'Cause, you know, racism means "hating people who have different skin color" -- they're not racist themselves, they just don't like the way the blacks in this country do blah blah blah...
I can't remember -- can you cure stupid or not?
commented on Mashiko in West Seattle Writes a Letter to Their Bigoted Customers
I do think it's noticeable that in Mashiko there seems to never be another Japanese face other than Hajime's among the staff, and I can't help but suspect that that has something to do with why the one little comment got such a big response. It's noticeable among Seattle-area Japanese restaurants to the point that I've always assumed it was like an unwritten "Mashiko rule."
One time Mashiko made the single best piece of sushi I've eaten in Seattle. I don't know the race or gender of the chef who made it, and of course it doesn't matter. The service has always been good too, and I've given them good marks on the comment cards they pass out at the end of the meal.
Mashiko does unfortunately have a problem with being inexplicably overrated, though. I've been back more than once and found out that that one piece of sushi I had was definitely an anomaly. Even the rice they served last time I was there was so ridiculously bad, that it was almost funny.

I'm with @8... I really hope Anna has never heard Beat Happening (hint, hint)!
